A Kid's Guide to the Voting Process  (ISBN-10: 1612283365 | ISBN-13: 9781612283364)

Americans have been voting since the United States was first formed. As U.S. citizens, we vote for our country's presidents, senators, and representatives in Congress. We also vote for local leaders like mayors and city council members. We even cast votes to decide how our tax dollars are spent. How does the voting process work, though? Does everyone have the right to vote? Can this right ever be taken away? How are political candidates chosen? Is there anything kids can do to participate in the election process? This book answers all of these questions and more about one of the most important rights you will ever have as an American citizen—the right to vote.

A History of the Democratic Party  (ISBN-10: 1612283373 | ISBN-13: 9781612283371)

Reaching all the way back to Thomas Jefferson, the Democratic Party has been in existence almost as long as there has been a United States of America. It was born as a "party of the people," according to Jefferson, a political party designed to appeal to the average American citizen. Throughout the years the party has risen and fallen with the political fortunes of the United States. Yet, as the twenty–first century enters its second decade, the party remains a viable political force. The party has changed greatly since Jefferson's day—just like the country it serves. The story of the Democratic Party is the story of America.

A History of Voting Rights  (ISBN-10: 161228339X | ISBN-13: 9781612283395)

Have you ever voted on something? You might have voted for pizza for dinner, which movie to watch or who should go first in a game. If you have ever voted, you know how important it is to have a voice in making decisions that are part of your life. The people who created this country knew that too and took many risks to create a country where they could speak freely about what they wanted. The battle for voting rights was a long one—with some people being allowed to vote long before others. Read about who made the decisions and who had to fight for the same rights. Seeing how hard African Americans, Native Americans, and women fought to have the right to vote reminds everyone that voting is part of what created this country—and what will help it keep growing and changing today and in the future.
